Britney Spears' mother Lynne is afraid of being called a racist in a defamation case by her daughter's ex-manager Sam Lutfi

Britney Spears' mother is terrified she will be accused of being a racist. Lynne Spears - who is being sued along with her ex-husband Jamie by Britney's ex-manager for defamation, breach of contract and libel stemming from their daughter's public breakdown in 2008 - is reportedly seeking an injunction to prevent him from making anti-Semite allegations during their upcoming trial.

A source told US gossip website TMZ that Lynne has filed documents asking the court to block Sam from calling on an expert witness to testify about controversial comments she made about him in her 2008 memoir Through The Storm.

The 57-year-old mother-of-three referred to Sam as a ''Svengali'' in the book - a term often used to describe a person who manipulates and controls others but also refers to the ''Wandering Jew'' in Christian mythology.

Jury selection is currently ongoing ahead of the trial.

Britney is still under a court-ordered conservatorship after she was admitted into a psychiatric hospital and lost custody of her two sons Sean Preston and Jayden James following a breakdown in 2008.

Britney's lawyers have hit back at Sam's claims he tried to save her life and sources said they will try to prove he was a fame-seeker who isolated the popstar from her family.

The 30-year-old X Factor judge's life is now firmly back on track and she is preparing to marry her long-term love and former agent Jason Trawick.
